Consideration for admission to the DBA program requires the following additional documentation:
Conditional admission to the DBA program may be granted to an applicant who shows high promise but having GPA between 2.6 and 2.9 or missing requirements 3 and/or 4 stated above at the time of application. Determination of high promise can be made by the Provost and is based on the applicant’s personal statement, resume, letters of recommendation, GMAT or GRE scores, or academic transcripts.
Conditionally accepted students with low GPAs will be granted the regular graduate status after achieving a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better during the first two consecutive terms of the program (15 units minimum). Students with first term GPA below 3.0 are subject to dismissal. Students with GPA of 3.0 and above in the first term can continue with the conditional status for one more term.
The conditional status can be given for two consecutive terms only. The Provost may grant a student the regular graduate status before achievement of the GPA requirement based on LU faculty recommendations, research activities, and/or publications.
Students missing GMAT/GRE test scores and/or recommendation letters are granted regular status after (1) achieving a GPA of 3.5 or above during a first term (9 units minimum) or during the first two consecutive terms of the program (15 units minimum) or (2) submitting required GMAT/GRE results and/or letters during the first term of study.
